Google that allows for war a senior with their smart speakers and through with your programs. Where we i identify that folks were in fact. Struggling would be able to attitude into your access to the supermarkets for instance call early in march in april.

How's that process going. And how well our seniors able to adopt voice technology today and then let's talk about you know where where we'd like to see it.

Trump I know it's not the same circumstances by any means, but is this both a joke and not a joke. I mean for the purposes of twenty twenty it, it's a joke. I think he already missed the deadline to get on the ballot. In least eleven, state again the process or especially.

Wood felt compelled to update it nearly forty years afterwards death. Stay with US this Houston matters continues. This is Houston matters. I'm Craig, Cohen more than a million people in Greater Houston are food insecure that means they don't have reliable access to enough affordable nutritious food. That's where foodbanks step in working with vendors nonprofits to distribute food to hungry Houston's the Houston Food Bank. In recent weeks has experienced stretches of increased demand relief was supposed to come in part from the trump administration's farmers to family's food box program designed to take food from farmers that would normally go to. To restaurants and deliver it instead to millions of food, insecure Americans, but it hasn't exactly gone as promised according to analysis just out Tuesday from Reuters the program fell short of its June thirtieth goal. Houston Food Bank CEO Brian Greene tells Reuters his banks got about sixty percent of what it was told it would get how come well? Let's talk through it and learn more about other recent developments at the Houston Food Bank with Brian Greene Brian Welcome back to the program. Greg is. The on this program? Thank you glad to have you with us. As we chat, we welcome any questions or comments. You have at seven, one, three, four, four, zero, eight seventy. You can email us at talk it. Houston Matters Dot Org, you can reach out on twitter at Houston matters. Why has this farmers to family's food box program not delivered nearly the food that it pledged it would. Well, it's still pledged. A did a heck of a lot I think that Alto first period we distributed about fourteen million pounds because of because of that program. Also, it was a lot ramping up something that was just a start. As is always difficult The when they put the bidding process out they they used a format that was different than what they normally would. Normally so USPA through the University Food Assistance Program. And the school commodity programs they're used to working with vendors to supply They used a different process this time to try and ramp up very quickly and a a number of vendors came online that frankly were not able to perform. And that probably well, at least in our case, that accounted for a good deal of our shortage There was an outfit out of San Antonio that. Mainly an event planner. They've never done anything like this before, but they've put in a little bit, and. I guess you know. They they got a very large contract and Texas suffered for that, so the vendors difficult environment something new, and then some of the vendors probably do. They just could not perform the way some of the other vendors because. This is just one of several programs and initiatives, though the that are aimed at helping food, insecure people and supporting efforts like yours right. Oh and Yeah, that's why I don't WanNa. Is is one that the first first round definitely didn't go as well. like a vendor in San Antonio. They're not in the second round. we do performance is is going to clearly go. we in grateful for that. It's not the only thing that USDA's doing is certainly knocking. Checks? Management, just doing and that's really been a huge part of what the naval us to surge on the distribution as much as we did. you compared this time previous year we distribute about four hundred thousand pounds per day six days a week. That's about ten tractor trailers worth of food. we during May and June, the average daily amount was it billion pounds. Per Day on average, so to announce times mental, all got would not have been possible if the community hasn't stepped up so much, help on, but also use agriculture experiment. Michael's are fixed permanent mercy management. To help us out so a lot of things. have gone I think he's worth well because we're talking about a very train time for people, but you know a lot of the responses well overall, though the biggest aid for families It was the was the snap. the the snap going to families but also the what they call a pandemic mean T-. electric benefits transfer for the families whose kids normally would have received the school. Fear reduced lunch. schools being pulled. They get but the families being eligible to get that amount. You know frankly those him out. are bigger than what you know what we did in. It doesn't doesn't get nearly enough credit. Yeah, you were just referring to schools among your many partners are some sites that provide the summer. Meal Services to in fact, Houston Public School Families last week. A number of the sites, not partnering directly with you had to temporarily close due to increased cove in nineteen cases in the area. How about the sites that you work with? Oh Yeah you know the sturgis is any Any Food Bank of city in this aside, and it's interesting businesses. we keep we keep operating on. We've got very strict protocols in place. lose one of the greenest. Frankly early on, we made with Harrison terrace health department said, look the let you keep doing these distributions on in the community, but you have gotten. You have to enforce that site are doing the stricter protocols. I mean the reality is. People are still gonNA. Get Sick, just trying to consider them.

"Twelve thirty five on the big show Clock Bob. Quitting the big show today. Andy and I have been going over this Latest Corona Virus Food Assistance Program For Agriculture Andy We talked with Secretary of Agriculture. Mike Nag in there was an area that was not covered in here. Well a couple of areas. You talked about One of those though The ethanol industry and we have on the telephone line with us. I believe Andy Mighty shos talking to us today. Good friend of the Big Show. Executive Director. Our renewable fuels association here For some real time reaction to USDA's announcement or I guess money in your case non-announcement announcement What do you? What do you make all of this? Well rightly or wrongly. You know the. Usda for the last several weeks is pretty much and sometimes in fairly blunt language told us that you know they're not going to give any money to the biofuels industry to help get through this time unless Congress directs them to we think that's a mistake Along with a lot of other people around the world or around the country I guess we do think the. Usda has the authority to do this and And should do it. And they have and they have funds there that they could use to do this But if that's going to be their position then we have no choice but to look to Congress and the house Recently passed a provision that would provide some economic assistance to us. And maybe as early as today I don't really WANNA scoop their their news. But I do believe that Senator. Grassley is operatives working on some legislation introduced that would would Provide some support as well. What what type of support do you need money or or how would you like to see that done you know? I mean I'd like to be creative. I like to think outside the box. But we're in a situation where there's just not a lot of options right now. We we expect about forty percent of Iowa's ethanol capacity is production capacity as offline We'll get some new numbers later today. It might be a little bit below that but it's still going to be close to forty There's just no way. The government can hit some magic button and restore that demand in short order. So you're basically left with a choice and that is you're either going to provide a cash infusion to get these facilities through this You Know Covid era of demand destruction or you're going to see a lot of them you know. Run out of money going bankruptcy. Some not have the cash to even by corn to start up when demand does ultimately return so That's what the government has done for many other industries And while it's not necessarily creative they do it because it works and If we want to see these locally owned ethanol plants you know stay locally owned and and survive this that's what Congress or the USDA. He's GonNa have to step up and do well and The ripple effect obviously down through the industry to what we're talking about with corn and soybean prices greatly depends on that industry being viable and being operational and being in place. Yeah if you think about it about nationwide real close to forty percent of corn goes into an ethanol plant Upper thirty percents On a typical year now. Obviously we're making more than ethanol we're making the distillers grains and there's corn oil and there's lots of other products even to that people have learned is pretty important in lots of industries The comes from US but here in Iowa it's close to sixty percent so almost sixty percent of corn first time it's going to be processed. There's going to be an and all and I mean that's just a huge part of our market It's something that we've always been very happy about it. I mean that's the whole reason. Farmers got involved in created the modern dry mill. Ethanol industry was they wanted to add value and create a market for their ever-growing yields of corn. And so we've always prided ourselves on being a good place to take that corn and having to be a win win so you know it's it's hard to see these plants shut down into see farmers you know looking for other options of of where to go with her their corn or of livestock producers. You know not not having access to the steelers grains that they become So accustomed to it's a great affordable source of protein and and we want get these plants going but the bottom line is going to take months to get demand back to levels where you don't have all this capacity offline overhanging the market even now when you get a little bit of good news like plants pop on and then it like more plants come on back online than are required for the little bit of good news and we're just GonNa see that Little Ping Pong Until we get back to normal demands. And that's going to be a long time. And that's that's why we definitely need some help and you know we'd like the USDA to just to do it we think they have the authority and the cash to do it but if it takes congress than we are asking our legislative leaders to to direct the USDA to do it Well we'll keep in touch Will keep up with. What's going on money? I guess I just ask. What do you think be You know what do you think? The chances are something coming through Congress at this point. I think people understand how important this is. I don't think it seems to me that the you know the the bill they pass out house is probably not going to fly through the Senate to say the least but the Senate is going to work on. I do think that they will come together. With another proposal. To help out the economic devastation. From from all these shutdowns and you know the shelter in place orders and everything and and I think there's a good shot. We can get by a biofuels package in there I think what the House did was very similar to to what industry been asking for from the USDA differences here. And there you know is it. Bushels is a gallons but the end of the day. We need a reasonable way to give an appropriate amount of of assistance to these facilities and and to see them through and we either do that. or. I think you're going to see some of them. Go Away so I'm actually optimistic. That while this next package might take a few weeks yet to put together we we can. We can be in the final pack Well like I said. We'll we'll keep in touch with the as we have been As we all get through this and appreciate your time today money as always anytime thank you. Yeah you bet. Monte Shaw Executive Director Iowa Renewable Fuels Association Bob With you continued still out there. And that's one of the things that Secretary Nag mentioned earlier was This direct assistance isn't perfect and certainly renewable fuels have been hit hard during this period. Also yeah exactly and I think Monty Is Talking to as well about another eight package that Still working through Congress. There may be something in there for renewable fuels but Secretary Nag pointed that out earlier force. Hey Andy let's move on the three big things you need to know brought to you by your Iowa. Soybean farmers planting progress in fact corn planning basically is complete here in the state of Iowa before Memorial Day with a big number showing up with. Usda NASA their weekly report ninety six percent to the crop in the ground sixty three percent of it has emerged soybeans Coming along nicely as well. Crop moved to eighty six percent planted almost nearly a month ahead of last year and three weeks ahead of average cares with the. Usda NASU says about a quarter Dean are off the ground nationally eighty percent complete planning wise fifty three percent Soybean wise eighty percent on corn. And you can see all of the numbers out on the big show. Website seeing an increased price of gasoline and therefore that start to be good because it indicates increasing demand six and a half cents higher this past week Patrick. Dehaan of gas buddy says the increase is attributed to eight nearly five percent increase in gasoline demand. gasoline dancing that quotas long states continue to loosen restrictions. It'll mean more motorists on the road and filling their tank direct assistance details continue to filter out from USDA as to how it is going to assist of food fuel and fiber producers for disruptions in the industry beyond their control caused by covid nineteen in the pandemic. You know this is much needed assistance first and foremost and so. We're appreciative of First Congress Allocating these dollars and then. Usda and the trump administration. You know getting these pushed out and in doing so by the end of May which is what they said they do. So high was secretary of Agriculture. Mike Nagging daily addressed to the food and fiber industry.

"Well I mentioned we have some boots on the ground eyeballs out in the field and that is Ben Hollings head is with us right now. He is Grandma's with the folks from key coop. Ben Your work in central Iowa. Let's get a quick update on how things are going into the ground? I would imagine we're pretty much done. Corn and soybeans in your neck of the woods. Aren't we YEP I? We're pretty well wrapped up in fact I'd say most the most of the crops around here pretty well coming out of the ground. We're often running in fact We're already starting to make preparations for post emerge spring here when the weather starts to cooperate a little bit. So so it's really. It's been one for the record books. That's for sure now. Now Ben is in the shadow of the farm. Progress show grounds right there in central Iowa and we had some rain here over the last three or four days. Ben So kind of tell me a rain you picked up in different geographies. You serve well right here. This topic aims. You know there was probably about eight tenths of an inch of rain but then if you go to the West a few miles there was a little heavier band where you can see a little bit of ponding and some spots right there. Right as I drive by the farm progress show There was a little heavier band arraigned and And then then if you go a little bit farther to the east the northeast. There was another band aid. So it's your typical spring Body spotty showers. Where if you just happen into end up getting lucky it got a little heavier heavier amounts and but all in all it was very muchly needed rain. Yeah Hey Ben Andy. You mentioned One for the record books For for good reasons this time right. Well I tell you when you can when you can talk to a lot of the older farmers in there like boy man we. We don't know we've ever been done this early with planting and then to have it come out of the ground like this You know. Obviously we could use a little more heat. Now we're getting ready to which root systems in the corn. And it's going to be looking for some nitrogen and it Kinda want some heat here so Hope hopefully that'll become well. That's what I was. GonNa ask you stand wise Emergence Wise. What have you been seen in your scouting? You know the the the corn crop it was it was so dry early that There there are some differences. I don't know what the stand is. We we'd probably had stronger stance that have initially came out of the ground. But at least here on the moines low you know Prairie pothole type soil. We've got ourselves a year where we're not missing any ponds and When When you get when you get that sort of situation whenever acres growing something on on these soils at least boy. There's a lot of potential out there Yeah and Would imagine that's got got some some providing I guess some reasons for hope here despite what else is going on well. It's definitely a whole lot better than it was the a year ago. The situation You know it was just You know about this time a year ago. It think about it we were. We were basically rained out for a month and There was this a lot of A lot of operational plus treats going on so this We definitely feel a whole lot more on our on our toes this year the knocked back on our heels like last year a Ben. How's the ALFALFA looking well? This cool weather as definitely slowed some of that up A lot of my. Hey guys I you know it. It might not be the biggest first cutting At the just because we've had enough cool weather and then that that dry period in their Kinda slow things down but all in all. It's it's coming along good. I would imagine some guys that are going to start thinking about Putting that First cutting down as soon as as soon as it looks like we're GonNa have ourselves a another dry stretch so any bugs hitting the bugs hit me on not not at this point. Not at this point yet Nothing nothing too bad You know you just. You just never know with bugs. I I saw some guys. They're already talking about last year with the soybeans. You know we have this. Whole caterpillars flew in from the south. And and start a little talk about that. Obviously we don't quite know what's GonNa Happen there yet but So far So far so good. It's your nothing that's that's going to To hurt anything yet but You always gotTa have your happier Thinking hat on and and be ready for anything. Yeah and in fact last year. I think we had a couple of generations of fissile caterpillar. We did we did.

"food assistance program" Discussed on The Big Show

"I'll ever twenty three on that. Big Show clock Secretary of Agriculture Mike Nag. Joining us here on the big show again today. Mike WanNa talk about two things today. We're going to get right After it I wanNA talk a little bit about the Corona Virus Food Assistance Program that was designed to bring some aid to livestock producers. That I also want to ask you about county fairs here in Iowa that coronavirus food assistance program. Though I think sign up is supposed to start this week and yet we don't have a lot of details Mike can you give us any more background? Or UPDATE US? That's right. Welcome back Bob yeah the? Usda did hold a a Webinar last week. And and frankly there were Kinda few details In that and and and yet we know that. Usda is working aggressively to try to get this done. I think undersecretary nor the made some comments Late in the week over the weekend that The package is currently awaiting White House approval. Which is which is how that works. Usda proposes something White House Office of Management and budget needs to approve and so it sounds like they're in the final stages of actually getting the the program rolled out so again remember. These are the direct assistance direct payments to producers really across the the landscape to help grain farmers livestock farmers impacted by the market disruption. So as I've been saying all along this is a good start. It does not include everything That we think that needed to help. Producers and in fact doesn't even include all of our producers egg producers are notably left out of this direct payment system the other piece remember. We've got direct payments and then we've also got. Usda making significant food purchases. I think the big number is by the end of this calendar year. They will have They're budgeted to spend around five billion dollars buying food and again those surplus products that that would have gone to food service. And and get that routed into The food helping to address food insecurity through food banks Food Pantries so It's still waiting for those details and I think staff at. Usda would be trained this week. Which is the surest sign that something's coming forthcoming on those payments? Because of you you train staff and then that's when when folks can start applying quick question on that as a follow up. I am guessing that the requests for probably Go further than what the money will revert you and being in first or is it something that's going to be applied equally? You know this is something that I I think. That's a good point. Bob And I think we all believe that there's probably a more significant market impact than what's currently being accounted for and in all likelihood you could see that situation develop just remember it as opposed to the paycheck protection program or some of the programs that have been run through Treasury is. That's those were operated as a as a first come first served that's not typically how. Usda operates And so I can't speak to that in its entirety but generally speaking we know that. Usda Concerned with and and usually roles programs out in a way that's fair and equitable and and so I just don't think it'll be run the same way that we saw. The P P P quick update on county fairs by my count Here we have Thirteen county fairs. That have changed plans in some way one of them in your backyard in Emmett's Berg. Have you heard anything else? Yeah this is you again. It's something we've talked a lot about here we we hate to see it and yet The folks those county fair boards or making the best decisions that they can given their circumstances on the ground and the folks that Iowa stayed with the four H. And and the folks that FIFA I know are continuing to look at ways to still hold competitions and for folks and so this is just one more. We're going to have to continue to to work our way through it. you know State Fair no the State Fair Board is is evaluating all options for the twenty twenty state fair. And so we're all I think hopeful that these things can continue but You know decisions have to be made. And and Boy I support those. They're tough tough calls. But we support decisions made locally. Yeah Hey Mike tough calls no doubt in hearing from some people making those decisions over the weekend to I was comforted a little bit too to see at the grocery store on Saturday. Mike For Meat Case. And yeah not maybe the cuts and the sizes that I'm used to for example twenty one pound pork shoulder opposed to seven and a half to eight or ten and a half to eleven that I usually see But but no shortage certainly At this time anyway yeah. I think that's a that's a good sign. I was in a grocery store over the weekend myself. I loaded up the smoker yesterday so had in there But a lot of a lot of pork in that smoker. But there were some other things too but Yeah I think generally what I've been seeing is that that that situation is improving some you've got grocers that are working hard to find new suppliers and as you say maybe carrying some cuts and purchasing from some places that they had traditionally done so. I think folks are grinding. It's still a challenging situation. We've got enough protein on the farm The processing capacity is still slow from from pork and beef standpoint. So I think we're you know we're running something like seventy one to seventy two percent on pork processing last week and nationally down about twenty seven percent on beef processing so this situation continues and that means we're still building that backlog of animals but I know grocers are working hard to try to find an in restaurants too as they open are trying to find product. Mike he gets the last word today. Thank you. We'll talk to you again tomorrow as we continue our kind of daily updates with you we appreciate. It sounds good secretary of agriculture. Mike Nag Joins US eleven. Twenty and we're going to continue doing that. It's good to hear from our First Guy.

When you're talking about young children being brought across on the journey. It can't be as difficult as people are trying to make it out to be when it's politically expedient for them to say, there's not really an issue. There is a huge issue. We should be having a very honest and vocal debate about this. So now when we're going to see families that are considered to be the working poor in America, the qualify for food assistance program being told that the money is about to run out, and they'll have to look elsewhere. You are going to start to see some movement by people. One of the things we're going to do coming up nine thirty just after the bottom of the hour. We will talk about the incoming freshmen the progressive caucus in the house of representatives. These are people that are no joke. We I am not going to complain about their motivation. I'll be honest with you. How many of us wish that the Republicans in the house of representatives would be one joined at the hip group. Loud vocal and saying we've been elected to come here to do a job. This is no joke. We didn't come here to play because that's what these group this group of freshman. Incoming freshmen are saying led by is far. As of visuals are concerned Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. They are going to hit the ground running. They didn't come there to step in fetched. They didn't come there to sit down and wait their turn. They didn't go there to be told you vote the way we tell you to vote sit there until you learn how this game is played. So it's not going to get easier for the president's agenda moving forward. And here's the trade in all of this. And this is the part where I've if you've been listening. I apologize for being so repetitive. The media's not doing their job in telling you. How things should be or how things really are. Because if they were. We would be talking about what should be happening from both perspectives. How is it that the Democrats can be such hypocrites on illegal immigration spending? All the years that they have being border hawks demonizing illegal immigration. If if President Trump were to rip and read the words of Bill Clinton in the state of the union address Senator Obama denouncing and this was before he was president Senator Obama denouncing the legal immigration and how it's a slap in the face to legal immigrants. And Chuck Schumer saying we shouldn't even call them undocumented. They don't even designate now, I don't know if you've noticed, but it's gone from illegal immigrants to undocumented migrant to just migrants. They're no longer called illegal on any level. They are lumped in with every other immigrants altogether. You is doing it the right way or the you're the wrong way. But you're all migrants. Most Americans understand the need for this. It just needs to be articulated and fought for. This shutdown now is going to cost people that need it with food assistance. Now, it's my personal belief that the federal government shouldn't be issuing food assistance program. It should be held at the local level. And I also think that the private sector is much better better at charity than the than any government entity is I think that when you work in the private sector and at home in Arizona, I work closely with Saint Vincent to Paul. And I know there are a lot of great worthwhile organizations across the country.
